I really enjoyed some French frost recently. Firstly a massive hoar frost that seemed to cover all of France, then a light scattering while out walking one morning. I’m sure it’s a factor of getting old or having kids or something, but things like this are more beautiful than I remember them being when I was… Continue reading Untitled
Part of my research and thinking at the moment, on what makes us all act so differently and believe such seemingly opposite things, is making myself aware of thing that ‘I myself don’t get’ or that I think are bad or wrong.

Given the new industrial aesthetic of exposed breeze blocks and concrete, these would give a… Continue reading Untitled
Details noticed on our first holiday stop: Some nice bits of almost modernist concrete where we’re staying. Noticed different family member styles of taking sandals off. Neat mummy, casual daddy, whatever kids. And loving the braided palm leaf technique for roofing material. Would like to see how it’s done. Starting at one end (which?) or… Continue reading Untitled
Asphalt Archaeology A beautiful project and photos from Mikhail Mishin. I’ve captured similar in the past like this betting pen: Wish I’d continued to keep my eyes peeled. Such a nice collection of observations. The tones also remind me of this other pic:
